I remember the friendship we had in Texas and the fun we had. Dan was always the jokester. We remained friends from afar all these years and will remain friends forever and ever.

So many fun memories... Dan always made us laugh....we knew each other growing up in Melrose-our mothers were friends. Then as "grown-ups" Bob met Dan at Bulman's Shell and we had great times like Saturday night bowling, pizza, just driving around. Dan was in our wedding party. Even though we didn't see each other in years, we always kept him and Karen of course, in our minds and hearts. Love him forever, Bob and Pat Rock

I will always remember the laughs we had on the golf course especially the time a dead pine tree fell on our golf cart at The Tradition Course.
